Statistics with Python

  • Calculating Standard Deviation in Python
    When we're presented with numerical data, we often find descriptive statistics to better understand it. One of these statistics is called the standard deviation, which measures the spread of our data around the mean (average).

System Setup

  • Setup Your System for Data Science
    As you begin your journey as a Data Scientist, it is important to get familiar with tools on your own system in addition to tools in your web browser.

  • Your System's Terminal
    Every operating system contains a Command Line Interface (CLI) that lets you interact with your computer using a keyboard known as a terminal. You can do everything you already do on a computer via the terminal, but you can also do a whole lot more!
